This was the great injustice of this 2023 school year: the incredible Baldur’s Gate III did not benefit from a physical version on PS5 , instead, we had to settle for overpriced dematerialized versions (Okay, the xbox didn’t get anything). A difficult choice to justify as the wait around the game was excessive, and it is not the existence of a distant Japanese version, announced for the end of December (whose language specificities are still to be determined) which will make up for this decision. .
However, hope has just been born, since Larian Studio, developer of the title, has just opened the pre-orders for a collector’s edition, PS5, Xbox series X and PC!
To do this, you will need to go to the Larian websitechoose your game support, relieve you of 100€ (79€ for the game and the rest for shipping costs) and you will just have to wait until a vague “First quarter 2024”.
A generous collector, but nothing more
For the price, you’ll get a lot of stuff.
First of all, the cake will contain the Deluxe version and its exclusive bonuses:
- Divinity Item Pack – Equip your party with an array of items inspired by the world and characters of Divinity.
- Bard Song Pack – Astound audiences by performing this special set of new songs – or have them covering their ears if you lack proficiency.
- Exclusive Dice Skin – Fail checks with style, or succeed with a new air of confidence.
- Paintings from Rivellon – Discover a new collection of paintings across the Forgotten Realms, inspired by Divinity: Original Sin 2.
- Adventurer’s Pouch – Receive a collection of camp supplies and potions to help get your journey started.
- Digital OST – Enjoy the music of Baldur’s Gate 3 from composer Borislav Slavov. Crack this soundtrack out in your D&D session, and get the feel and mood of Baldur’s Gate 3!
- Digital Artbook – Explore the art and design of Baldur’s Gate 3 in this comprehensive digital artbook, written by Larian.
- Digital Character Sheets – Peruse and print a set of four-page D&D character sheets for each Baldur’s Gate 3 Origin character.
To be more precise, the PC version will contain a Laucher, the PS5 version will fit on 2 blu-rays and the Xbox version on 3.
But that’s not all, since some goodies will fill your shelves or beautify your walls:
- A poster 570 x 690 mm
- 32 Stickers
- A double-sided card measuring 160 x 180mm
- The game’s soundtrack on 3 CDs
- A collector’s box in the spirit of that of Baldur’s Gate 1 and 2
So, it’s not incredible either and it’s a bit expensive, but it’s already not bad, because for the moment, the game on PSN is available at a completely unreasonable price. NOW, it’s time to release a basic version, at a basic price (or else lower the price of demat because it makes no sense).
